2005-08-25 [Cassave]: This is odd, when I log in it doesn't open in Main Street. It opens on my Received Messages...

2005-09-04 [threelade]: [Cassave] thats a new feature.

2005-09-04 [EvilElf-k-9]: now i know about what is in the colums...but not the details

2005-09-18 [innolongerhere]: And how is this a "Newbie ET Guide"...i need a manuel to figure out the guide

2005-09-18 [ally]: It's quite simple actually: just click the links on the things you don't understand or need help with.

2005-11-06 [admiralthrawn999]: how do i post more than 2 pics?

2005-11-06 [dragonflye]: you can put an image tag in the description of the picture, or put them in your general description.

2005-11-13 [Paz]: But the guards might remove them. They aren't fond of more than two pictures up there and don't like the extra pictures in the picture descriptions

2005-11-16 [ally]: O_o That's not true. The guards only remove images that are against the uploading art rules

2005-11-27 [liveordie]: how do i make a new wiki

2005-11-27 [dragonflye]: Go to the wiki search on the right of the screen and type in the desired name of the wiki. If it is an unoccupied wiki then it will come up as an empty page. Then just edit it as you want.

2005-11-27 [liveordie]: chears
